That would be assuming that Charlies transfers are always the very best sonically. I know that you are well aware of the fact that this is not always the case.

There is way too much junk being added here on a daily basis to assume the most recently added tranfers are the best quality. And you, being a stickler for sound quality, know this well so don't pretend otherwise...

Have to agree about the sonic trash being added. TJI is usually a disappointment. Why do we need another crappy AUD uploaded to join the 6 or 7 other crappy AUD transfers of any given show?

That is true. I always do have a look at TJI, but you know most of the time, I let them go. But I do have to say, i have really enjoyed the '76 stuff Charlie Miller has been putting up recently. You gotta admit, it's good shit.

It was someones taping/experience that night. They want to share I suppose. Maybe like our comments they just want to be part of the scene. I welcome 'em all.

Just like the reviews that start out with "I was at this show!!!!" and go on to explain the time of day, the weather and everything else that has nothing to do with the quality of the recording and performance, sifting through the crappy AUD transfer that people post just to see their name in lights gets mighty old mighty fast.

Have to agree there. When reading a review of a show that I wasn't at, I just want to hear about the music. The ambiance is all well and good, but when I'm picking a show to play on the way to work, the fact that Larry scored some liquid LSD off a dude in a clown suit and later thought that urinating on a police car was an excellent idea, despite being entertaining, doesn't help me pick a show. As for quality of recordings, you can easily pick those tapers who have produced excellent work on a fairly consistent basis (Jim Wise, for excample).
IHMO, of course.

Nice! I think I read that review somewhere... But seriously, with regard to a reviewer's dance down memory lane...I don't care that you were at the show!!! Guess what? I was at a lot of shows too!!!!
